      Have owned these drums for over a year and love them. I use the rawhide heads in an acoustic setting but switch to the Fiberskyn 3 for rock bands and they both sound great. The Requinto is killer. However, what really pisses me off is that the gold is peeling off all the hardware and looks like junk. These drums are beautiful and I treat them like glass, but inspite of this fact the gold is flacking. Very cheaply done.

          galaxy review

          Comments about LP Galaxy Giovanni Series Conga:

          The LP Galaxy conga is a great drum,I have owned a set of both the galaxy and classic models. But, they do not compare with the tone, performance, or feel of solid stave constructed drums (such as Sol or the new Gonbops). These are the drums the conguiero brings home.

          Comments about LP Galaxy Giovanni Series Conga:

          I have never used, seen or heard anything as good as these. I would not trade them for any other conga out there. They have the perfect sound for every genre or music.

          Best Conga out there

          By 

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about LP Galaxy Giovanni Series Conga:

          I purcased these drums four years ago and they are still sounding as sweet as they did when I first got them. You will never need to buy any more conga drums. Smart investment for the avid percussionist. It is wise to get some bags to carry them around in once you see how shinny and beautiful these drums are you won't want a single scratch on the drum.

          By 

          from central texas

          Comments about LP Galaxy Giovanni Series Conga:

          This comment is for the Giovanni Palladium series, the congas with the exterior bands and height of 32". These babies are huge- and very very heavy, the Super Tumba is truly a king kong of congas, and pal, to play them, making yourself one with these beasts- the set of four with the super tumba- life is great, it's like having total control over the world!

          I recently purchased three of these drums - excluding the Requinto - and they are excellent. I think I'll be with them for a long time.

          disappointed

          By 

          from capital of the world

          Comments about LP Galaxy Giovanni Series Conga:

          LP tried too hard with this one. Aesthetically the drum is tacky, the stain makes the would grain look fake (I prefer the traditional look but was attracted to the idea of an attack conga).The gold is a bit much, but the nuts and bolds are a cut above the other lps. The rim is awesome, very comfortable.The sound gives of a very metallic aftertaste and must be tuned up higher to be really appreciated. The conga must be off the ground to really appreciate, although this isn't really the tool for that. I wonder about just getting a djembe for the same purpose of soloing, this drum has a sound akin to that. However I must admit that the "golpe seco" on these joints make life worth living. I'm still seriously considering returning them to see if i can find better value and better looking drum (even though it had been heavily discounted by this site).
